Cut your bunny shapes
Either make your own Peeps Template or print your printable onto coloured paper (or use the cut & trace version if you perfer).
Cut out all your Peeps shapes. You have a choice of a “double sided” Peep or one sided Peeps. The double sided version is better for hanging.
The cotten tail can be in the Peeps colour or cut from white scrap or omitted.
Add your hanging twine for hanging in the Easter Tree later
Take a bit of yarn or baker’s twine, fold in half and knot. Glue between your two Peeps shapes.
Fold your 8 coloured circles in half.
Assemble your “paper bauble” halves don’t forget the bunny’s cotton tale
Add glue to one half of one semi circle and stick a second one on top. Repeat until you have 4 of the circles stuck together. Put to one side.
Now glue two more circles together. This time add the cotton tail circle before gluing on the third and fourth circle layers.
Add the third and fourth layers, until you have a 4 circle stack with the cotton tail inbetween.
Final paper peeps decoration assembly
Add glue to the front of the Peeps “tummy” and glue your first four circles in place.
Repeat with the back. Your Paper Peeps Ornament is now finished.
Aren’t they cute?!
